The best bands are formed by chemistry not design and their debut album Small Town proves the point. From the minds of Seth Strickland, Otis Lande and Jonny Jyemo, along with fresh textures from Mikey B3 on Keys and Eric Benny Bloom (Lettuce) leading the brass, the album makes for a strong brew indeed.
Green Buddha is in its true element performing live, whether as a power trio, “Got B3” Quartet or full Bloom of brass monster, this band brings the heat.
“No Coast Reggae” A fresh incarnation of style from musicians with deep roots. The members of Buddha have brought their varied musical backgrounds together with an ear towards creating a distinct new reggae sound; a sound that speaks to Colorado’s vibe.
Influences range widely from classics like Toots and the Stones, to the hybrids of the 90’s like Fishbone, Chili Peppers, Sublime and 311, as well as contemporaries like John Browns Body, Black Seeds and Slightly Stoopid, not to mention personal & family connections to greats like the Subdudes and Aquarium Rescue Unit.
While most of the songs are written by Seth Strickland, (a surrogate child of the Subdudes), it is Otis Lande (son of jazz legend Art Lande) who leads the band on musical direction. Add in one Jyemo, a lefty world beat drummer of supernatural acumen and you have Green Buddha.
As a DJ, he’s supported numerous international artists including Cojie [Mighty Crown], Iration Steppas, Mungo’s Hi Fi, and Tippa Irie. Since 2011 he has released dozens of mashups and over 50 mixes – including guest spots for Bass Music China, Dub Temple Records, Dub.com, Monkey Radio India, NiceUp, and “The Saturday Skank” (RTHK Radio 3). His 4:20 mix for 2017 has been particularly well-received, with over 20k plays. Since moving, TGT has also found a home at community radio station KGNU, regularly hosting the “Reggae Transfusion” and “Dub Palace” shows.
TGT co-founded the Pomegranate Sounds label in 2017, a creative endeavor with ▶▶△. In December, he released his debut production work on the label with collaborator Scotty McD: the Winter Showcase EP. The seven-track is a dub-drenched journey from hiphop through to downtempo and features guests Hijinx and Mama Kush.
An experienced, versatile, and well-regarded journalist, TGT diligently maintains his own website dedicated to In-Depth Coverage of Underground Sounds, specifically dub, reggae, and local music: TheGrooveThief.com. From 2014-2016 he wrote dozens of clubbing articles for Time Out Hong Kong magazine, and he still regularly covers the reggae scene for NiceUp. TGT’s recently added a new role, editor of the Global Reggae Charts, and has also been developing his own interview series: #TGTfeature.
Whether you need a featured DJ, quality music between bands, or a full sound system setup, TGT is ready to tastefully select from across the dub/reggae spectrum and beyond. Please email TGT (TheGrooveThief@gmail.com) directly for booking, contact, or submissions for radio play.
